in the private sector outside law acknowledges is that if make areally going to difference in the new health paradigm, we have got to come to pyramid andf the recognize that is where the efficiencies are. putting greater emphasis on illness atd less on the top of the pyramid not only produces better results, but costs less money. it isn't that it has to be or.er our goal is to cover the entire pyramid. putting the balance where it really needs to be with a far greater emphasis and reliance on care thanthe pyramid we ever had in history. that butbegins to do it is going to take a lot of additional effort. the eerie medical school is here before aboutalking the emphasis on internal and the need for more primary care. i was just delighted to hear they are one of the top schools in the country now in offering good primary care and internal medicine opportunities. i believe it is coming. it is a crass expression, but i think it is true, you have to follow the money. moneyve to follow the with regard to reimbursement, with regard to educational opportunities and where the is for assistance for stu
, healthcare.gov. before i talk about the law and its benefits, let me tell you about a visit i made to the emergency room on a friday night recently with one of my boys after he broke his left arm. excellent.s so much of our emergency trauma and specialized care is. what was remarkable to me is not the care that my son got as grateful as i am, but rather the crying of two babies i heard in their emergency room being treated for asthma. dramatic asthma attacks. i cannot know for sure whether those babies were insured or not. if they did have coverage and the access to primary care that comes with such coverage, chances are it would have been far less likely to be getting emergency care for something like asthma on a friday night in the emergency room. parents broke full as -- my heart broke for those parents. they seek care for their suffering child in the emergency room. we are talking about asthma, something increasingly and sadly common, but also fundamentally treatable. dell with and the emergency room, which "the new york times" in great caret reminded us is the single most expe
follow constitutional law. in the federalist papers number government, what is itself but the greatest of all reflections on human nature? it went back to refer to the great security against gradual concentration of the civil powers in the same department consists in giving to those who would minister each department and the constitutional means and .otives to resist encroachment the government was set up to specifically prevent this. , i am seeings here, and not only in this administration, but in need radius of mistreating and several administrations, the executive branch is taking for granted that they have exclusive power over issues that they do not. i'm concerned about that and what we do to prevent that. where does this stop? this is my question. we have seen the president and the past presidents, concerning the war powers act, which, i think, have violated the constitution. in this administration, they detained illegal immigrants. they stopped enforcement of drug laws, i know that because i'm a prosecutor and i saw it. he stopped the enforcement of mandatory sentencing and part
new law, which is something that happens under all administrations, it has to happen sometimes for practical reasons. why we are making a big fuss about this as a constitutional matter, is not beyond me. i understand why it is being done. if it sounds like politics, that is what it is. position. >> i have too little time for two little questions. let me start by saying that i generally in many respects agree with professor turley about the growth of the presidency over the last half century or more. i am particularly concerned about the abuse of the war powers by many president and the state secrets doctrine for the enforcement of constitutional rights and a surveillance under bush and obama and the patriot act, warrantless surveillance in the bush administration and things like that. i must say that everything we are talking about today is laughable in my opinion in the context of these problems. i am particularly struck by the overwhelming hypocrisy of the claim that the president in interpreting the law and in refusing to interpret the law in the way that would drive a stake
into treatment in the first place. there is 4 l's, liver, livelihood, lover or the law. those 4 things. liver, livelihood, lover and law. within those l's is when somebody shows up in my door, someone suffering, a family member suffering who brings somebody in. when it company ms to treat we know there is different types of treatment, there is evidence base treatment. there is good evidence for it, we do it. there is evidence free treatment, there is no evidence whatsoever and there is evidence proof treatment. one of those evidence proof treatment is incarceration treatment. there was an office inspection in general report and eventually matt case became supervisor for it. i have been involved in other places. treatment in custody doesn't work. flash incarceration does not work. as far as the treatment that do work for alcoholism, alcoholism is a chronic disease like diabetes. hypertension and emphysema. when we look at outcomes for chronic disease, a landmark study for the journal medical association in 1999, showed that results for treatments were no worse or better than any other chronic
this up. this is like arbitration. we'll decide this later. >> the law was signed into law 3 1/2 years ago. the insurance company will estimate how much the government might owe them for subsidies and the government will cut them a check and they will figure it out later when the website is working. how is it going to be gotten back? it's r, fe for fraud and huge mistakes. it's a huge science and it will involve billions of taxpayer dollars. bill: the errors are not fixed and we don't know when they will be fixed. >> when all hell broke loose they started working on the front end of the website, the part the consume sellers see first. but the back end where the actual purchases take place have not yet finished. look at obama's event yesterday. he highlighted the stories of four people. two were young people who benefited from keep your coverage on your parents until you are 26. another den fit from lifetime caps. another who was a doctor who hasn't sick. nun none of them actually purchased affordable coverage on the obamacare website. bill: they need to be even rolled, byron. >> it's just
the connecticut law demands that public records be released. these are public records defined by the statute therefore they've got to be released and the fact that the connecticut legislature post sandy hook changed the law and kept off-limits communications between first responders in a situation like this to the extent they were commenting on a homicide. but where the legislature hasn't protected this situation, the law says they've got to be handed over. >> michael, there are seven land line calls from inside the school at the time and they are expected to be released there. a part of what's going on as this community braces for the one-year anniversary on the 14th, the new school superintendent john reed sent a letter to parents in the district as well as staff and it said, i want you to have the opportunity to thirveg about steps, if any you may take to minimize media exposure for you and your family. i have not listened but i suspect it will be an emotional trigger. i remine confident by supporting one another with love and understanding we will continue to move forward as a school sys
, we may never satisfy the law's opponents, i think that's fair to say. some of them are rooting for this law to fail. it's not my opinion, by the way. they say it pretty explicitly. some have already convinced themselves the law has failed regardless of the evident. but i would advice them to check with the people who are here today and the people they represent all across the country whose lives have been changed for the better by the affordable care act. look, i have always said i will work with anybody to implement and improve this law effectively. you got good ideas, bring them to me. let's go. but we're not repealing it as long as i'm president. i want everybody to be clear about that. we will make it work. for all americans. >> and the president asked for help. >> i'm going to need some help in spreading the word. i need you to spread the were about the laws, about the benefits, about its protections, about how folks can sign up. tell your friends, tell your family. do not let the initial problems with the website discourage you because it's working better now, and it's ju
to re-launch the disastrous program on the health care law. but unfortunately, the damage is done. we're now learning more about the security risks associated with this website. now listen to what david kennedy, the so-called white hat hacker, talk about the development. >> when they created this website they kind of threw a lot of things together, mixed and matched a bunch of parts putting it on the site to be used by the general public. so when you have that type of website it is actually hard to go back and fix that security around it because the security was not built into it. so it will take months to address, over a year possibly to at least the critical exposures. >> no security in mind when they built the website? that is pretty disturbing. now, unfortunately, there is more to come. according to a report in "the washington post," the enrollment records for millions who have chosen to enroll in the on-line marketplace, continue to generate errors in the computer system, meaning they may not get the health care they expect next month. now the errors have affected one third of th

[ applause ] and we are now going to move to our second panel. while they take their seats, this idea of forced treatment versus constitutional rights has always been a tension that we've had in our criminal justice system. there is an issue that came up earlier this year that you may have read about involving this implementation of a court that was supposed to treat individuals who were suffering from long-term alcoholism. and the court was set up in a way where individuals were not being arrested for a crime but instead were being jailed for contempt of court as long
the health care law. it's not enough to say they turned in their work sloppy. no, the screaming you hear now is liar, liar pants on fire. it's an escalation of the old refrain the president's not who he says he is. nobody knew him in school, went the donald trump rant. he's not from here. now comes the charge the president's health care law is not on the level. that the president didn't just fail to get it right the first time, he's a liar. and on benghazi, he's something else they say. howard fineman and sam stein are both with "the huffington post" and both msnbc contributors. ted cruz's trail buddy has taken it to new heights. during a hangout yesterday, the texas senator used the issues of benghazi and the affordable care act to accuse the president of something truly sinister. let's listen. >> i think the current administration has taken lying to a new level. to me that's one of the most aggravating thing about what's happening in washington these days. particularly about this administration. which is a lack of accountability. and the willingness to mislead people or provide them just d
on the toughest laws in europe. >>> and i'm gabriel in brazil where the fifa final draw will be happening on friday, but everyone here is worried about the state of the stadium. ♪ >>> after ten days of anti-government protests in thailand the rallies appear to be thinning out, but it's temporary. demonstrators say that the fight will continue. earlier they marched to thai police headquarters in in bang cox where they handed over a letter demanding investigation into the death of four protesters. many have now joined the cleanup operation. the streets are littered are rubbish and debris. the king is staying at his summer palace, but first on the days' events in bangkok. >> reporter: in less than a day it went from rows of rye rot police to rows of street sweepers. like they have for the last ten days, these two pitched in. in previous days protesting. but today cleaning. traveling in from the privileged part of bangkok, the two have been friends for years. >> at least we make a point, and make our presence felt, and that even though the goal may be remote -- >> that goal being the resign
were just out there pimping ourselves and the law practice the blog would be very different and much less successful. how well it does or doesn't right now really turns on the fact that people don't perceive it as something that's out there trying to sell you something or to develop the some advantage for our law practice and i do think tony raises a really important set of issues that should be discussed and that is, okay, but can you truly have it both ways? can you practice in front of the supreme court, right, and your professional success there depends on your credibility with the justice and at the same time run an institution that is going to truly cover the supreme court? and truly be able to describe it warts and all? and how is it that you navigate that sort of thing if you want to really call yourself a journalistic institution? because that dilemma will repeat itself too potentially. if you're an expert in physickings, if you're an expert in plumbing there are lots of things you can talk about and write about and cover where you don't face the dilemma of really pissing so
plans. the state's public sector say they will challenge the illinois law in court. >>> it affects only illinois state workers but right now pension funs for chicago city workers including police and firefighters are short of meeting their obligation by $19.5 billion. chicago mayor rob emmanuel said, the pension process is not solved until relief is brought to chicago and local government across the state. that concerned police veterans like lieutenant maloney. he joins us now from chicago. jim, first of all, your reaction to what the state of illinois did as far as their efforts to solve their debt crisis. >> as far as the pension underfunding. it's a result of mismanagement by the cities, by the states, the cities and states, they have used pension funds as negotiation tools over the years in lieu of wage increases. they've granted pension benefits. that's created this problem. we're here there today. i sit on former mayor dalye's commission to strength committee's pension from 2008 to 2010 we did a report. that report made some suggestions that that administration did not follow with
its protections are. and most importantly, how people can sign up. i know people call this law obama care. and that's okay. because i do care. and -- i do. >> that event highlighting the crucial importance of getting young people to sign up for coverage under the affordable care act. but it is this president's earlier address that offered the clearest picture yet of the president's second-term priorities. with the health care law just one part of a vision focused on greater economic equality. and for this president, it's a political mission that's rooted in the personal. >> the combined trends of increased inequality and decreasing mobility pose a fundamental threat to the american dream, our way of life and what we stand for around the globe. so what drives me is a grand son, a son, a father, as an american, is to make sure that every striving, hard-working, optimistic kid in america has the same incredible chance that this country gave me. >> in addition to the president's policy achievements, including the affordable care act, the president offered his support for raising the fede

which he fought for so long in the justice. the decision was law of the land. equal justice under law. >> when a supreme court decided the gideon case, they really brought light to that phrase. it doesn't matter if you are rich, it doesn't matter if you are poor, you get the same equal chance. >> just look at what happened to gideon. the supreme court didn't set gideon free but it gave him a fair trial with a competent attorney. >> not guilty. >> clarence earl gideon was a free man. the man who won a landmark supreme court case went to live a normal living with a job pumping gas. >> when i read where it says equal justice under law, i'm very inspired by that. i'm very comforted by that. but i know a lot of people are treated unfairly. i see it as something encouraging but i don't see it yet. >> it's written into constitution and established into the goal for society to reach for and live up to. people will fall short, rights can be ignored or even trampled. with nothing more than a pencil and knowledge. >> if you know your rights you can protect your rights. if you don't know your r

. then because we have no money, we reach out to the local bar. law firms like jim's law firm or chris's law firm help us in situations where we are trying to establish counsel and reinforce. we get over a thousand cases a year. from that first request we are usually able to take it down to about half. many of them who are writing to us are not claiming to be innocent. they are probably claiming that their prison conditions are inadequate and they are probably right. they might be claiming that they haven't received their medication, they are probably right. they are probably -- they often complaining that they were overcharged and over sentence. they probably right. we refer them as much as we can to those that might be able to help them. from then we begin the triage process to see if there is any kind of assistance once we investigate and if we are able to litigate it. >> thank you. next i would like to ask jim, poor people who are accused of a crime have a right to a public defender but most of the cases are in civil court, child custody, workers right, compensation for catastrophic injuries
's time to ensure our collective bargaining laws function as they are supposed to so unions have a level playing field to organize -- to organize for a better deal for workers, and better wages for the middle class. it's time to pass the paycheck fairness act so women will have better tools to fight pay discrimination. it's time to pass the employment non-discrimination act to worker can't be fired for who they are or who they love.
